“While in Budapest, our four-hour cooking class was definitely one of the highlights. We weren’t able to do the Market tour due to time constraints, but thoroughly enjoyed our chance to cook with Agnes. It was a pleasure to be able to choose the menu, learn about ingredients and access a bit of Hungarian culture in this way.”

Linda C. from Oregon

“My husband and I loved this class! We made Goulash Soup, Chicken Paprika, and Hungarian Apple Cake. Andrew was patient, funny, and informative. He taught us some new knife skills in addition to how to cook three delicious recipes.This was the highlight of our five days in Budapest. Take this class!”

Stephanie G. from London

“My sister and I had a wonderful time learning to cook the “real” Hungarian way. We throughly enjoyed our Chef Andrew and his many skills and the way he explained the ingredients. He has a way of explaining each piece of food and its color, crispness, smell and feel and why some cuts are better than others. We loved it.”
